Hello Tester,

Man sorry to hear about the console troubles. Let's see if we can get this working.

Here is what to do if you get a red dot on your console:

  1. Let the power supply cool for about 30 minutes.
  2. Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet.
  3. Disconnect and reconnect all accessories.
  4. Check the power supply.
  5. Remove the hard drive.
  6. If the above steps don’t solve the issue, order a replacement power supply from the Xbox Online Service Center.

If steps 1-5 do not work, step 6 will be the final solution. 

Let us know how that goes, or if you have anymore questions.  

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
